DeBruce Cos. acquires three truck accessory manufacturers

LTA Manufacturing LLC, a subsidiary of DeBruce Cos., acquired Ranch Fiberglass, ATC Truck Covers and Jason Industries for an undisclosed amount.

All three companies manufacture covers and fiberglass caps for pickup trucks. Jason Industries is exiting the cover and cap business to focus on the RV and marine industries, so its molds were transferred to ATC’s production facility in Ottawa, Kansas. Ranch Fiberglass will continue its production in Elkhart, Indiana. LTA Manufacturing will handle all the sales, marketing and manufacturing of the three operations under its umbrella.

“The combination of Ranch, ATC and Jason will enable us to be more flexible and efficient,” David Price, president of DeBruce Cos. subsidiary DeBruce Manufacturing Group, said in a release. “We will be able to ensure faster turnaround to our dealers and to their customers. So far, the transition has been seamless and will not affect delivery or lead time.”

Price said the acquisition of the three brands expands their dealer network and accessories line, which will increase sales.
